The 2017 Light of the Path and Family Dharma Camp were a resounding success! Wow! Wow! Wow! From the bottom of our hearts - thank you to all of the participants and the dozens of volunteers who made it possible. We also want to thank all the people who made Lama Zopa Rinpoche’s visit here to Kadampa Center such a beautiful event.

Our beautiful new Lama Atisha statue is an amazing addition to our Center as well as the fulfillment of Lama Zopa Rinpoche's wishes. Donations from many people made it possible to bring Lama Atisha here -- thank you!

We are working on our 2018 Budget and looking forward to another wonderful year for our Center.

Much love,

~ Your Board of Directors

Thanks to Jill and the many volunteers who came together to make the 25th Anniversary Gala such a huge success. Also thanks to our SPC, Donna, who must have a Thousand Arms, for keeping all of our classes and programs running smoothly, coordinating visiting teachers as well as planning the upcoming LOP Retreat.

Exciting times are coming with the visit of Lama Zopa Rinpoche, Light of the Path Retreat, arrival of the Lama Atisha Statue and (hopefully:) His Holiness the Dalai Lama coming to Raleigh in October! With all these amazing events and opportunities at Kadampa Center, we face some larger than normal expenses. Your continued generosity to help support these auspicious events is greatly appreciated.
